I already showed you a few of my favorite perfect Gucci gifts for the season, and today I’m sharing more–a few items from Gucci just wasn’t enough. Gucci’s designs are as elegant and stylish as ever, and even at a luxury price point, the bags feel like a strong value because of the brand’s fine materials and craftsmanship.
Gucci Handbags and Purses
During 2014, Gucci has released collection after collection of gorgeous bags. Bamboo had a huge resurgence for the brand, as well as textured Diamante leather and the new Jackie Soft. To close out the year, Gucci put together a stunning compilation of items that are sure to delight, whether as a gift for this holiday season or a new bag for a new year.
Over the past few seasons, the most impressive thing about Gucci’s handbags is what the brand has managed to resist: over-branding, over-embellishment and over-baked design of all kinds. Every collection seems more well-edited than the last, and the results get simpler and more beautiful with every new collection released.
It’s that time of year again when LA celebrities grab their kids (or kids they’ve borrowed especially for the occasion), the paparazzi grab their cameras and everyone heads on down to Mr. Bones’ Pumpkin Patch. Here’s Rachel Zoe, pumpkin-picking with her sons Skyler and Kaius and her husband Rodger Berman.
Right when I saw the Gucci Soft Jackie hit the Gucci website, I fell head over heels in love. It’s not the simple kind of love, but rather the intensely deep kind. Gucci tops my list as my favorite brand of the moment, and it continues to deliver, collection after collection.
Somehow, Gucci never seems to go wrong with its huge line of handbags. For pre-fall, the brand delved into its vast creative archives to bring back the house’s Diamante leather in an array of bright colors.
At the PurseBlog offices, we’re all Gucci fans of varying degrees. Megs totally loves the brand’s bags, and Katherine and Bea are right behind her. While I think the brand makes gorgeous bags, they often don’t line up perfectly with my personal style; it’s a brand that I think looks great on other people.
Here’s Charlotte Casiraghi, Monaco royal and granddaughter of Grace Kelly, leaving an equestrian competition in Cannes with a natural leather Gucci Soho Satchel. Charlotte is an active competitor in equestrian jumping events, and she’s also Gucci’s “official equestrian ambassador, which means the brand dresses Charlotte for many of her events.
